Kindle Paperwhite 3rd generation halts sales

By Marlon Votta - Feb 10, 2014

The Kindle Paperwhite 3rd generation hasn’t even been confirmed by Amazon, but it is clear that some buyers won’t purchase the Kindle Paperwhite if there’s any chance of a 3rd-gen seeing a release date in the next few months. With this in mind, we are eager to find out what people think of this and find out how much this 3rd generation Kindle might be going for.

We get the impression that regardless of pricing and availability, some feel that this is all speculation at the moment and many cannot see a reason why a new Kindle Paperwhite would be introduced so soon after the recent release of the 2nd generation version.

To get an even perspective we have decided to highlight ongoing discussion on the Amazon website as many feel that there is a distinct possibility that this device will not emerge until late this year. Other consumers are not overly excited about the upcoming release and some even go as far as to say they would not buy one even when it does come out.

Although talk about the 3rd generation instalment is mainly just speculation until something official is revealed, we are aware that the price of the next Kindle Paperwhite is a major factor when it comes to attracting custom but rumours suggest the release date could be a lot sooner than expected with reports saying this could arrive in the second quarter.

This will mean only a few months between the 2nd and 3rd generations, and this is something that has accumulated a sceptical view, with rumours saying it will be 300 pixels per inch, which is an upgrade to the current 212 ppi, while other enhancements could be to do with making reading more simpler with the introduction of a new custom-made font choice.

Other rumoured improvements are expected within the brightness adjustment, and a weight reduction, even though we are hearing that Amazon might be replacing the plastic screen with a matte-finish glass. With this in mind, we would love to know if our readers are looking forward to another improved version of the Kindle Paperwhite before the year is up?
